Encourage Critical Thinking, Leadership and Team Management

Supervisors and Managers

Participants use processes and tools introduced throughout the program to plan and execute a workplace performance project. They will gain hands on experience with conflict resolution, cross functional communications and how to work effectively as a team. This project provides participants with knowledge, tools and confidence to use for future improvement opportunities.


About the Program

This certificate program is an initiative designed for current and high potential future Supervisors and Managers. The program focuses on encouraging the development of critical thinking, leadership and team management skills. Developing these skills supports increased productivity, improved workplace culture, enhanced team communication, higher employee engagement and overall promotes a collaborative working environment. With the help of a hands-on Workplace Performance Project participants don’t just learn new skills, but develop and enhance their skills to be able to apply their learning to their workplace.

This program provides skills training using industry validated content, live or virtually facilitated learning blended with e-learning and an action based workplace performance project. Sessions can be run in a cluster format - the blend of several different organizations in one session, or in a stand-alone format -private to just your organization. The program is offered in both online and in-person formats; both of which include ongoing support from professional trainers.
